Trying to pipe results in ' instead of |


I have Ubuntu 7.10 running, but when trying to pipe commands and I push Shift + \ it results in the ' character instead of the |. Also when I push the \ key without holding shift it produces a # character. Anyone know how I can fix this?

Sounds like your keyboard layout is set to the wrong layout. If so, change it to your locality in the Control Centre in KDE, or the preferences menu in Gnome.

You were right, there was a German setting that wasn't selected, but I deleted it anyway and it works fine now. Thanks!
